I've installed Debian stable 9.3 server for an Nginx environment, and I consider upgrading it daily via cron:
0 0 * * * apt-get update -y && apt-get upgrade -y
My system is minimal and uncustomized: It's a VPS to run a webserver with only these ports open: 22, 80, 443, 9000.
My system has no third-party software (that is, software originating outside the Debian repositoirs), besides
Is it still problematic to upgrade daily as I plan to do? Given I host at DigitalOcean I've asked the DigitalOcean support about this and they said it should be okay but added something like "there has been some webservers that stopped working due to such upgrades" (it isn't clear if the aforementioned webservers and their environments where of a similar, let alone identical, stack and if they even were Debian stable).
Do you also see a problem in the daily upgrade approach I take to my specific minimalist stack?
I assume I don't want to use
unattended-upgrades that gives only security upgrades. I want to make sure everything is upgraded. This was my main reason to move from Ubuntu 16.04 xenial to Debian stable.
I guess this answer can indeed have an answer like "generally it is a wrong approach considering your current stack" or "generally it isn't wrong considering your current stack".
